A professional grade aluminum travel tripod. We tested about 40 of these from various manufacturing partners because this was really just an effort in sourcing something that meets our specifications. Fairly lightweight, reasonable price point, excellence in manufacturing of components and their fit, great performance and wear for leg adjustments and tighteners (this is a super big deal), and the ability to work with us to expand and change the configurations as we move the Nootle product line forward.
A professional grade full adjustable ball head with quick mount. This is a medium weight ball head with a quick release plate. We really like the size of this ball head for use with the iPad and just about any compact, MILC (mirrorless interchangeable lens camera), and dSLRs without too long a lens. You'll find it super easy to work the quick release plate and easy to adjust angles and rotate with comfortable grippy knobs.
